With the International Traders Conference just over three weeks away, we thought it would be a good idea to offer anyone wanting to deepen their Forex trading knowledge a look at what goes on within the conference. The ITC is an event hosted by FXstreet.com, one of the world’s top 10 currency trading portals offering information to help traders achieve success in Forex investing. Since the conference is purely educational, FXstreet.com’s focus was directed primarily into seeking out six of the best industry professionals to help attendees become better traders. For three days, guests will be able to partake in a series of talks and interactive live trading sessions with the speakers, as well as connect with others who share the same interests as them.
What makes this event so special is its vivacious, warm, and social atmosphere. Since there is a maximum of 70 attendees each year, the event remains very personal, allowing guests to work closely with the speakers. For three hours each day, they will be able to engage in live trading sessions with each of the six speakers where they will get to follow along with their trading on their own computers and even partake in a few trades themselves.
Below are some photos taken at the last ITC, which took place in 2010:

Having the opportunity to interact with others who are passionate about improving their Forex trading skills is what makes the ITC such a unique event. Here is what a four-year attendee from Greece had to say about the conference:
“I have participated to the ITC from the first venue up to the most recent. This says a lot about my liking for a venue like that. I have no relationship whatsoever with the organizers so the decision to come from my country and attend was merely based on the merits that I receive towards my strive to become a better trader. The atmosphere, the organizers and the speakers have always been exceptional.
I went the first year and then thought that I might not go again cause I had a lot of information to digest. But likely each year has been so different, especially the info that you can implement to your trading.
For me the motivational aspect of the ITC is the biggest bonus as you get to meet with very interesting people and exchange ideas and cultures from all over the world!!
The way the ITC is organized is unique on how you learn, interact, meet and talk to speakers. All the concepts covered are immediately analyzed and applied during the live trading sessions.”
